Novation Summit 61 Key Polyphonic Synthesiser

Novation Summit

The Novation Summit builds upon its predecessor the Novation Peak, as the flagship model. It's a two-part multitimbral, 16-voice polyphonic synthesizer with a premium five-octave, semi-weight keyboard. It is well suited for musicians, sound designers, and synthesizer enthusiasts.

The best sounding synthesizer Novation has ever made

Summit doubles the power of Peak’s digital New Oxford Oscillators up to 16 voices and two parts and adds a wealth of new features and a premium-quality five-octave keyboard. A synth much greater than the sum of its parts, it gives the serious producer or performer everything they need to design and play stunning basses, leads, arps, pads, effects and beyond.

Totally tactile sound design

Summit takes Peak’s architecture and workflow to new heights. Featuring a row of extra front panel controls for hands-on wrangling of FM, effects, LFOs and more; dual filters with six LP/HP/BP combinations; audio input for processing external sources with the onboard effects; and auxiliary audio outputs.

Analogue where it matters

The true stereo analogue signal path comprises dual analogue multimode filters, analogue VCAs and three stages of analogue distortion – pre- and post-filter, and post-VCA. With roots in the legendary OSCar, via Bass Station II, Summit’s analogue credentials are truly impressive.
